    Thank you for providing these links and podcast, I found this useful. I selected Social Media Marketing Podcast and enjoyed the mix of topics and enjoyed listening to him. I also like how he seemed to have a number of guests, talking about their experiences, giving tips etc as the more techniques your hear about the more you can try and learn. In particular I enjoyed the creating an Insta story podcast and it gave a great insight of why we should be doing them and the opportunity this gives us a business to show our personalities and show the face behind the brand. A simple message I took away but very effective.
